Funky Flea Market Finds in Branson.

Just for the fun of it... here's a fluffy post full of photos taken with my phone in a flea market in Branson - The Apple Tree Mall Antiques and Flea Market, to be precise. This oversized craft-filled mall bears the distinction of being open 9 a.m. - 11 p.m. most days, which means you can browse both before and after the shows -- and even after the rest of the shopping possibilities in town have closed up for the night.

Being where it is, it has some unusual items. Check these out -- and feel free to share your strange findings on my Facebook page or Twitterfeed.

I now know where all the world's ukeleles come from.

Milk bottles are interesting.  I collect different historical food items for the
possible inclusion in future Southern Food and Beverage Museum exhibits,
but this seems excessive.

Still, you have to wonder about people who kept pristine examples of such
things as ice cream cartons.

Yet still, the Borg apparently infiltrated Earth
in the mid 20th Century (see first photo).

A prime example of using what you have on hand:
beer can wind charms.

I don't even know.

Again, I don't even...

And then we have the Hillbilly Brief Case.  Points for literal interpretation,
marks off for containment (and the potential for marks on).

This is Grav's sign.

Ah yes, enough jerky to render a tie out of.  Hey, that gives me ideas.

The fact that someone thought this needed to be emphasized with a sign
gives me concern for the future of the human race.

Roger Williams apparently is done with the human race.  Great Vulcan
ear bob there, Rog!

If this were in our house, it would have fallen off
the wall repeatedly for overuse.

Every once in a while, it's nice to be able to tell someone "here's your sign."

Hey, some of us actually like getting underwear...

Yeah, I'm done.
